surviving presidents, george bush and george w. bush were all -- were unable to attend. president obama began addressing the crowd a few moments ago. >> we rightly and best remember dr. king's soaring oratory that they. how he gave a mighty voice to the quiet hopes of millions, how he offered a celebration path -- salvation path. his words along to the ages. investing a power and prophecy unmatched in our times. >> our correspondent is in washington at the celebrations. can you give us a flavor of the atmosphere there today? >> it is a very special atmosphere. tens of thousand of people turned up in spite of the bad weather. john lewis, the only man, civil rights activist, who stood here 50 years ago with mart luther king. we had actors, jamie foxx and oprah winfrey spoke. all very well receed from this ry mixed crowd, but as you can imagine, the stars here were the three presidents. you don't get to see three presidents speaking in the space of 45 minutes that often and the biggest of them all, we can still see behind me the first african-american president here in the united states, b
-related elements may, in fact, take charge of the country? president george w. bush was hounded by the press over these questions. if he had to answer, so should barack obama. here in stud quo is fox news channel's own colonel oliver north. his new book out in paperback today. >> it is a must read for barack obama. he needs to read this one. it's about a president who forgets about 9/11. guess what's three weeks away? >> my concern is, first of all, this has been going on for 30 months. 100,000 killed. >> over 100,000 dead. over 250,000 wounded. 2.3 million people in refugee camps along the turkish, syrian border. now flowing into iraq. it's an unmitigated disaster that the consequence of this administration's naive approach that all you need is an election in a country that's never had democratic traditions, no institutions and this so-called arab spring. every single country that's experienced this from tunisia in the west to syria in the east, people are worse off than they were before. that includes egypt, the most populous arab country. it's a disaster. >> they have telegraphed that it would
? the implications of u.s. military action in syria. plus, is former president george w. bush trying to rewrite history? why some are furious over a new hurricane katrina exhibit at the bush library. when we made our commitment to the gulf, bp had two big goals: help the gulf recover and learn from what happened so we could be a better, safer energy company. i can tell you - safety is at the heart of everything we do. we've added cutting-edge technology, like a new deepwater well cap and a state-of-the-art monitoring center, where experts watch over all drilling activity twenty-four-seven. and we're sharing what we've learned, so we can all produce energy more safely. our commitment has never been stronger. over 20 million drivers are insured with geico. so get a free rate quote today. i love it! how much do you love it? animation is hot...and i think it makes geico's 20 million drivers message very compelling, very compelling. this is some really strong stuff! so you turned me into a cartoon...lovely. geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance.

, by the way, there were lots of republicans, over 60 who supported a minimum wage increase when george bush proposed it the last time we raised it back in 2007. so this is not an issue that is that foreign to republicans, in no small part but it just polls through the roof. people recognize that a wage floor of $7.25 not a very low wage floor in our economy, but very low by measures of other advanced economies is something that is popular because, a, it doesn't have any budgetary implications. and b, it helps working people get reconnected to a growing economy that has largely left them behind. >> you know, you're right. because when you look at the polling, polls show raising minimum wage is really hugely popular. gallup poll found 71% of americans support it, including 75% of moderates, and even 54% of conservatives. and the fight for higher minimum wage goes all the way back to the first march on washington. did you know, jared, the organizers wanted a national minimum wage to, quote, give all americans a decent standard of living. this is in the '63 march. they wanted it to be $2 an hou
: is not george w. bush a former president? >> i do not know that he wasn't invited. >> bill: he wasn't. no republicans and no conservatives were invited. >> if it would have been me, i would have invited president george w. bush. >> bill: you see that was a mistake certainly. look, as if the congressman said at the end, we're all in the same boat. where's the conservative side to that boat? >> again, if it were me, i would have invited president bush. i didn't control it. >> bill: did i go wrong any place in that memo? >> i don't think it's political at all to point out that the wealth, the wealth gap is not substantially improved at all. in fact, it's not very good. i don't think some of the -- the fact we need to do something about the middle class. i wrote an entire book about that. i think that's more faction than anything else. >> bill: i'm not saying it isn't fact chill, but the policies they're instituting can't help it. the government can't run the private sector. >> this problem is brought on by a recession because of excessive leverage and risk taking. >> bill: that's in th
to go in, get it done. the reason it lasted so long, we're in there, not getting the george bush done. you either do it or you don't, on the side of backing off and waiting, there is 116 bipartisan, we sent a letter to president obama asking him to wait. president obama isn't on the hill meeting with people. he will be there tonight. he hasn't been there all week or the past year. and this is something they're saying you need to slow down because there are implications for what we're going to do here. >> it's hard to figure out where we're going to start. first of all, you are saying these islamists are killing -- >> women and children are on the line, they're dying. >> some say muslim extremists killing muslim extremists. >> their children are in the hospital. be i the way, iraq, we lost 10,000 people in iraq and spent trillions of dollars. >> we don't know who is doing it. we are hearing through a report that israel, it's the syrian government. we don't know that for sure. can we listen, this is axelrod saying, describing the difference between syria and iraq. >> this is no differen
council approve as has happened before, president george bush with iraq and president bill clinton with the co kosovo bombing in 1999. >>> live to the state department with an update from there. >> good avenue. we want to emphasize state department officials, white house officials, pentagon officials are emphasizing both on the record and privately that the commander in chief, president obama, has not yet made any decision about the action the united states is going to take in syria beyond the fact there will be an action. sources tell me the likely targtsz of the u.s. campaign will include the delivery systems for bashar al assad's chemicalarsenal. we are said to be striking command facilities located in damascus but also syria short range missile launches looking to conduct strikes against those targets. i'm told bashar al assad's presidential palace, some of the governmental military locations in damascus will not be targeted because a lot of key systems have been evacuated. a lot of artillery positions in the syrian government are located in mountains outside the city and those
by liberals during the bush years, he has got to. george bush got resolution 1441 from the united nations that could at least make the plausible case, meant, invading iraq was legal under international law. if he doesn't get approval from the u.n. security council then barack obama will be violating international law. it will be an illegal act of war. and, that doesn't mean i'm against it necessarily or that i think president obama should care one wit about approval from the u.n. i don't think the united states should care about the u.n. at all. i think that the idea that somehow we give a veto to china and russia about the morality or efficacy or legitimacy of our foreign policy is bizarre but that is a system that liberals have been championing for a very, very long time including barack obama and the double-standards here are, you know, are just so daunting for the president, given what he had said about, you know, foreign policy when he was a candidate. that he is now going back on all of it and he is in a real pickle. alisyn: well, that is exactly right. so why would the president ac
of george bush for doing what we did in iraq. now, that's inconsistentents now. it's really baffling to see the people on the left just rallying behind president obama, yeah, go ahead. fire the missiles! we're with you. but the people who were so antiwar and anti-conflict in the past, now they're ready to go without even knowing where we're going. >> gretchen: so many unanswered questions still today. but one of the big questions this morning is what kind of chemical weapons does syria actually have? what evidence does the united states have? heather nauert is here to break it down. >> we are learning interesting information this morning. the syrian deputy foreign minister telling reporters that sarin gas was used in several parts of the country, but he claims the rebels were the ones responsible for that attack. this assertion is not banged by the us -- backed by the united states which believes the syrian government unleashed the attack and is the party responsible. but what is interesting about this statement, gretchen, is that it is the first time we're hearing from a syrian government
was a u.s. senator. flashback to 2007. >> george bush and dick cheney must hear loud and clear from the american people and the congress, you do not have our support and you do not have our authorization to launch another war. >> i want to make it clear. i want to make it clear to the president. if he takes this nation to war in iran, without congressional approval, i will make it my business to impeach him. >> obama didn't know when he was criticizing bush. he didn't know how the world worked. he didn't know there were a bunch of bad guys. demanding that bush go through congress. demanding that bush go through the united nations. demanding that there be a coast guard. >> the war drums continue to beat louder and louder in the middle east. >> u.s. navy warships are standing by. they are waiting order from the president. >> the syrians have said that if struck, they will counter strike and downer attack on tel aviv. a city which they slay burn. >> it is pretty obvious the syrian army used chemical weapon. the president called that a red line so he feels we have to retaliate. >> what
party we don't want to look like the pull of the united states, the rapid tony blair became that george bush. there is growing consternation of we risking another iraq? the president's people are saying let's make darn sure the evidence we are presenting, vladimir putin michelle ng is rejecting that they really are chemical weapons being used and assad is the guy using them and not his brother. what they seem to be saying is if it is his brother who is in charge of this province that was getting all the chemical attacks than it is not really assad. now we are starting to split hairs. i am not here to justify the attack or not but say that we are clearly seeing decisiveness going. connell: brings up an interesting point how should people look at this. on the one hand these are complicated issues with a lot of gray areas, that is why we are seeing some indecisiveness. on the other side we want to make a decision and stick to it. easier said than done? connell: i always wonder, if i am assad and putting myself in his shoes, size 12 cop i am thinking they already said this is not about regi

feel it is a political nonstarter. then you see someone like george w. bush, who did try, made slight inroads and was demonized by certain black leaders. i think republican leaders should do more but i think they're afraid to do more. >> we have to leave it there. went a little long. george washington led the continental army to victory during the revolutionary war, patriot, hero, real leader. appears george washington wouldn't be welcome in president obama's military today, depending on things like the founding fathers were extremists or neonazis. ♪ ♪ >>> does the pentagon think the founding fathers are a tad extreme? in a student guide titled extremism put up by department of defense, the founding fathers' effort to free them is extreme ideology. they warn that many extremists will talk of individual liberties, states rights and how to make the world a better place. sounds like bolling. when asked about this, a spokesman said we're not saying it is a bad thing. if you follow the the definition of the term, the kol nis meets the definition of extremist. better understanding the e
've got a dream that joe walsh pays his child support, but on a completely bill o'reilly said that george w. bush wasn't invited, in fact he was invited, as was his fare, as was speaker john boehner, as well as eric cantor. so what gives here? >> the fact that the other shoe has dropped, and we know the real deal, let's see if they're equally aggressive about the as is of these noteworthy republicans. the fact is the civil rights movement at its broadest was a nonpartisan affair. martin luther king jr. and the other leaders of that particular march were invested in the radical transformation of america according to principles of democracy. if you were a supporter, whether libertarian, whether you were republican or democratic, then you could participate freely. the point is these republicans units that they are antitheyically opposed to every moment and gesture of black freedom that was articulated yesterday, and more broadly about progressive realization of rights for gale and lesbians and for the environment, for those who embrace those who are so-called illegal immigrants. this is a da
-- george w. bush-- was unable to attend today, as he recovers from a recent heart procedure. instead, he issued a statement saying: the moment that dr. king delivered his famous address-- with the appeal to "let freedom ring"-- was marked by a bell- ringing ceremony. that set the stage for the first african american president, who said the struggle for economic opportunity remains the nation's great unfinished business, but he voiced hope. there's a reason why so many who marched that day, and in the days to come, were young-- for the young are unconstrained by habits of fear, by the conventions of what is. they dared to dream differently, to imagine something better. and i am convinced that same imagination, the same hunger of purpose, stirs in this generation. we may not face the same dangers of 1963, but the fierce urgency of now remains. we may never duplicate the swelling crowds and dazzling procession of that day so long ago-- no one can match king's brilliance but the same flame can light the heart of all who are willing to take a first step towards justice. i know that flame rema
the short answer is he was a candidate, everyone was angry at george bush for taking what they call unilateral actions. it was an easy thing to say. now looks different on the other side. >> dana, i think that the american people are concerned that again america doesn't have an -- doesn't have an end game. so let's say you, you know, perform some sort of military strike on syria, you're not taking out assad. well, then what? like do you just -- i don't know, teach syria a lesson and move on? because there could be larger consequences. >> absolutely, that is one of the major concerns that you're hearing from members of congress and even the speaker who wants the president to be more specific to answer those questions. it's, i think, another major reason why you're not seeing the house speaker, for example, call the house back to session. they're not in session, not going to be back for about two weeks. because this is one area where republicans don't want to embarrass the president. they want the united states broadly to succeed on the world stage against some regimes, regime like --
believed that george w. bush needed to go back to congress for reauthorization of the war in iraq. but as president of the united states, he intervened in libya. he had a surge in afghanistan. and he didn't go to congress for permission on either of those. so i think it's a real interpretation of how -- of how you interpret presidential power and whether he has the constitutional authority to do this on his own. but if history is any guide, i would have to say that president after president does act without congressional authorization. i mean, the last time we really did this was in 2002. and so i think that this president's going to say he's on -- he's on firm ground. what he needs to get is public opinion. >> which seems to have evolved since our polling early in may. numbers are dwindling when it comes to support. jay, gloria mentioned iraq. we heard the president make a big distinction on this. he said it would not be like iraq. take a listen. >> if, in fact, we can take limited, tailored approaches, not getting drawn into a long conflict, not a repetition of, you know, iraq,
the case. in 2003 president george w. bush be initiated the iraq war without the security council blessing. you may remember back in 1999 president bill clinton instigated the 78-day bombing of kosovo by nato, also without the approval of the united nations security council, so the basic answer to that is, no. bill, back to you. bill: eric shawn, thank you from the united nations. when there are more headlines, we'll bring you back, there in new york. martha: let's go more in depth now. there is a strong contingency of foreign policy experts, including some who have been guests on this show and others, who say we should stay out of syria because they believe it is assad against al-qaeda at this point, our enemies against our enemies, so they say, and they believe that's a reason to stay out of this conflict. is this the uncomfortable truth of this situation, or is that really not the whole picture? elizabeth -- [inaudible] is a senior research analyst with the institute for the study of war. she has spent extensive time on the ground in syria, she has met with the opposition forces, she kn
the administration you work for and what you're responsible for. >> so i served under both terms of the george w. bush administration. was actually appointed by the transportation secretary norman mineta. as you may know, mr. mineta is a democrat served in the republican administration and r authoring and then congress passed a reorganization act that led to the creation of this agency. and this agency at the u.s. d.o.t. oversees a million daily shipments of has does materials by all modes of transportation, air, land, truck, sea, vessel. and even pipeline. >> so your current work with united transportation advisers, what is that? >> a consulting firm. i'm a lawyer, have a law practice and consulting practice. so we talk infrastructure projects, we talk transportation projects to both public and private sector clients. >> so one of y clients key stone xl? not. >> anybody supporting nosir. >> so as far as key stone xl is concerned, the position that you are taking through the advisers or anyone else, where do you stand on it or if it should be built? >> i've been monitoring this for several years

, boom, we saved george h.w. bush. race among we are stuck. we knew 100 years before the while thers, police let john mohammed go at least nine times, that racial profiles are problematic. question is, what can we do about it? weneed to keep doing what have just done in new york city where we passed the community what is a, because failure or for national security is a failure for neighborhood security. we need to focus on people's behavior, not on their race. ed last summer said derisively's officer working a neighborhood and he had a black and latino neighborhood and he had a suspect description of a race sucked -- rape suspect. he came across four young ladies sitting on a stoop, and said, have you seen this guy? no.soaid, they then stopped and frisked then. law enforcement is not that different from anything else. if you do one thing, you're not doing something else, so you better be doing the right thing. if you are searching for a rape suspect and you decide to stop and check if these for girls have a joint in their pocket, you are no longer looking for the rape suspect. that i
